[bookcourier] Re: Files and Folders

I am amazed that people are still out there too. I use my BC for reading text 
files. I have to convert professional papers from journals into a text file and 
then save to the BC, but I agree that the voices are good. I have AT&T voices 
on my computer and they are the best, but for a fast read I use the BC.
